WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Paul is an irreverent, provocative new play by Howard Brenton -- the author of The Romans in Britain. A divine revelation on the road to Damascus moves Saul to renounce his former life. He changes his name, converts from Judaism, and devotes himself to preaching the Gospel. Taking the remarkable life and moral teachings of this profound religious thinker, Howard Brenton explores the extraordinary phenomenon of faith. While offering a secular reading of the story of Christ's resurrection, at the play's heart Paul preaches from his Letter to the Corinthians, the eloquence of which cannot fail to move. "Forgive me brother, let's keep our relationship strictly commercial. I hear people get killed in Judea because of religious arguments. All I want is a tent, not a new god." Paul Rhys has had to withdraw from the role of Paul; the title role will be taken instead by Adam Godley. The first performance of Paul with Adam Godley will be on Tuesday 1 November at 7.30pm. There will be additional matinees at 2:30pm. Call the box office for details.
